News Roundup: Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill and More

13 05 2010
  • Ad Age has an interesting article on how Gossip Girl actually is successful, but the Nielsen ratings don’t show it. It is based on a study by Optimedia, which created “Content Power Ratings.” The Nielsens rank Gossip Girl as the 125th most popular show but Optmedia argues it should be 14th based on all the ways it engages an audience (as opposed to just through watching TV).
  • Chuck, executive produced by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) was renewed by NBC.
  • Beverly Hills 90210 will start from the beginning on SoapNet tomorrow. With the recent scheduling changes, the episodes will air at 11am and noon and then repeat at 4 and 5pm.
  • The new issue of Us Weekly has an interview with Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and hubby Dean McDermott on their vow renewal, plus lots of pictures, including one of Tori with brother Randy Spelling (Ryan, Beverly Hills 90210) and mother Candy Spelling (wife of Aaron, executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • The New York Times has an interview with Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) about his work with Calvin Klein.
  • Ausiello says “The CW is said to be strongly considering renewing both One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected for 12 episodes apiece.” But he has a very important disclaimer at the top: “The below info is purely speculative and should by no means be taken as gospel.”
  • There’s a feature on Jana Kramer (Alex, One Tree Hill) in the June issue of Maxim. Warning: NSFW!
  • TodayOnline.com has an interview with Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) and some others, mostly about Fringe.
  • Carolyn Hennesy (Mrs. Valentine, Dawson’s Creek) received a Daytime Emmy nomination for her work on Days Of Our Lives General Hospital.

  • Butchered, which features Cari Moskow (Patty, One¬† Tree Hill), will be available on DVD tomorrow.
  • In many foreign countries, when writing the date, they put the day before the month. That makes tomorrow 9/02/10 for them. Hee hee.
  • E! Online has a brief interview (no pun intended) with Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) about his Calvin Klein underwear campaign.
  • Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) was on The Wendy Williams Show. Inside TV has a great clip of her discussing her first 90210 kiss, which, as we know, was with Ian Ziering (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210). The show’s official site has some more info on her appearance.
  • Also, check out these clips for more on Garth’s current campaign for heart disease awareness.
  • Daniel Cosgrove (Matt, Beverly Hills 90210) will appear on Brothers & Sisters, which is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (writer-producer, Dawson’s Creek).
  • The Boston Herald has an interview with Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).
  • MTV has an article on James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) and his film Formosa Betrayed.

  • Dawson’s Creek and The O.C. are included in an article on shows that had strong ratings and critical acclaim at first but then lost them over time.
  • Fascinated by this article about a study on birth control education, where college students were shown an episode of The O.C. (circa Theresa’s pregnancy in season 1) or a news program on teen pregnancy and the reactions were compared. They found that “a fictional television drama may be more effective in persuading young women to use birth control.”
  • The Boston Herald also has an interview with Donovan.
  • Though it was interesting that Henri Lubatti (Henri-Michel, The O.C.) guest-starred on Chuck tonight, since both shows were/are executive produced by Josh Schwartz.
  • McG (executive producer, The O.C.) is working on the Charlie’s Angels remake. Aaron Spelling (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210) was responsible for the original show.
